Based in Chiswick, London Borough of Hounslow, West London, The Arts Educational School has been nurturing and developing the artistically talented since 1939. Splendid facilities enable our pupils to flourish in all aspects of the arts, under the watchful eyes of a superb, dedicated and highly qualified staff.

Our intention is therefore to allow pupils to use, explore and exploit these new technologies as an integral and integrated part of their learning. We believe that our pupils must learn to master and exploit the opportunities available in order to make effective and creative use of these new learning tools.

In Year 10 the course is further expanded to include Jazz, Repertoire, GCSE Dance and Expressive Arts, a comparative study of two different art forms. The pupils take both Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) examinations, and a variety of performance opportunities exist, in both large-scale productions and smaller performance platforms. A number of visits to theatres, concerts, museums and galleries are arranged throughout the year.

Drama
ThroughImage of Performing Arts Secondary School in London Drama, children can explore both themselves and their environment. Drama gives students the opportunity to generate and develop opinions and gives the invaluable skills in which they are able to communicate successfully and to work as part of a team. It promotes creativity, confidence and literacy. These skills are essential not only to drama, but to everyday life. Students study schemes of work that explore social issues through a creative medium. In Year 9 students study Expressive Arts and then in Year 10 take on the challenges of GCSE Drama. Students experiment with physical theatre, mask work, stylised and abstract work, naturalism, improvisation, musical theatre, text and off text work as well as devising and creating their own pieces of theatre. There is much written work, but this is balanced with the practical elements. Students also undertake the London Academy of Music and Drama (LAMDA) examinations, as well as taking part in numerous performance opportunities.

Music
Music is multi-faceted, exploring traditions from all over the world, and a kaleidoscope of performance opportunities are available to pupils of all ages. They experience many different types of music through a combination of listening, composing and performing. Singing, percussion instruments, keyboards and computers are all used to develop musical ability, and those who learn an instrument are encouraged to incorporate their playing into class music lessons.

All pupils belong to at least one of the Junior Choir, the Senior Choir or the Chamber Choir. A team of peripatetic music teachers visits the school every week to deliver individual musical instrument lessons which include piano, violin, saxophone, clarinet, flute, guitar, percussion and voice.
